Plymouth Arts Cinema


Salary: Voluntary

Plymouth Arts Cinema is looking to appoint several new Trustees to expand the diversity and range of skills and experience on their Board, currently comprised of four Trustees.

About Plymouth Arts Cinema

Plymouth Arts Cinema (PAC) is a not-for-profit charitable organisation, the only independent cinema in the city, with a much needed and a much-loved cultural programme. We have been uniquely providing independent cinema in Plymouth for almost 50 years. Open five days a week, we specialise in independent, foreign language and British films.

About the role

We are hoping to recruit two to three people who are passionate about PAC’s vision and who can bring knowledge, skills and experience in one or more of these areas:

  • Legal and Charity Law
  • Marketing
  • Philanthropy
  • Private sector business
  • Environmental sustainability

This is not an exhaustive list, so if you don’t fit into it, but you believe you can make a positive contribution to PAC’s governance then do please get in touch.

We want our Trustees to offer a broad range of viewpoints and experience; some will already have worked with Boards (either as a Trustee or as an Executive), and some may be joining a board for the first time.

PAC believes in the widest sense of diversity, and we want our Board of Trustees to reflect that. We are therefore keen to receive applications from potential trustees across the spectrum of age, disability, socio-economic background, and racial identity.

If you’d like an informal & confidential chat about this role, please do contact Executive Director and Film Programmer Anna Navas, by emailing with “Trustee Application” in the subject line.

Time commitment: Approx. one day per month
Term: 12 months minimum

1) Download the Trustee Recruitment Pack from our website. It contains all the details of the application process, what being a trustee involves and information about Plymouth Arts Cinema.
